When I look for clothes and find a beautiful box in my wardrobe. I often it, there are some old letters and postcards. I remembered that days, no more pressureds, just share my feeling with my closed friends. I forgot some detailed, however I could remember it from these letters. That's good time, and it can be remembered by the letters and postcards for a long time, even if you forget it. Do you still keep somthing which can make you remember something?

Hello keevinll!I've always kept things that refreshes my memories of the past that's why my drawer is filled with different kid of things that for others were garbage.Why? because I've kept tissue papers from different restaurants that I've been specially if in that place I'm with my friends and love ones.I even write notes on tissue paper as a reminder on what had happened on that day,on that place.I also have candy wrappers of my favorite candies and chocolates.I have receipts and toothpick.and most of all pictures.so who will think they're not garbage?But for me they are precious.I can even make a museum of memories.

hi! i have kept some old letters and cards from way back. stuff toys from friends and past boyfriends. small souvenir tokens of places i've been to locally and outside of the country. (just some, not everything. hehe) those are mementos and memories i keep and remember from time to time. i have a fairly good memory and i could remember vividly each story behind a "remembrance". and oh, i have written poems and quotations too. my first few attempts at writing in english. once, my mom showed me my picture when i was two years old and it immediately jogged a memory. so vivid when i retold them my version of the story that they laughed and asked me how i could remember those stuff from way way back. hahaha just yesterday as i was cleaning my stuff from storage, i brought out my 3-foot teddy bear so he could take a breather from being stored for a while. never mind that it was one of the first gifts from my ex-bf of 4 years that recently ended. now it only brought back fond memories of days past, coz somehow i have learned to shut off sad memories so i won't get mad or bitter ever.

for me memories are really treasured.. I still keep with me some souvenirs from the memories of the past. Letters, candy or chocolate wrappers, and a lot of things which I knew I am sure to bring back the memories of the past. Friends, and loved ones are never be forgotten.
